Have wanted to do this for a long long time, but only had the time to do so now.

See you on the other side! :)

this blog's been with me for the past 6 years now. not about to let it die :)

it's all a blur
this view outside my window
not like the way things were
when time was moving oh-so-slow

it's all a blur
they're moving too fast, you know
it's not the view that i'd prefer
but, maybe it's time for me to let go



By Farahin
So scared of breaking it
But you won't let it bend
And I wrote two hundred letters
I will never send
Sometimes these cuts are so much deeper than they seem
You'd rather cover up
I'd rather let them bleed
So let me be
And I'll set you free

now is not the time

.. a wise friend told me.
this is a rare occasion where procrastination is a must.

but to put thoughts into words:
why must it always be this way?
why do i put up with this?
why do i still give a damn?

sometimes the little things, like knowing you're appreciated, is the only thing.
is it so hard to do?
they were right.
it's the please and thank yous that matter.
at least to me.

then again, on my part, sometimes i forget.
that there are many unlike you.

hot n cold

By Farahin
just as katy perry puts it.

one minute you're hot.
the next minute you're cold.
and i'm not talking bout the weather.

Life's Like That

By Farahin

Ups & downs.
Sometimes thrilling.
It involves many other people screaming at/with you.
Beyond your control.
Just sit back and see where it takes you.
I wish I could...

Doing things I never thought I'd do.
It's one trip I'll never forget. =)

Lets be direct for once. I dislike people who speak Mandarin all the time even when you know the person you're sitting with have zero knowledge on how to speak the language. C'mon, social skills buddy, at least translate it if you wanna speak it. Correction: even if you don't know the person doesn't speak the language, you shouldn't assume that everyone in the world speaks it. If you can speak English when you're sitting with an Australian, why can't you do the same with me?

Ah anyway. It's something that ALWAYS bugs me, but I'll get over it.
In the meantime, I just think that this song is just super happy and can cheer anyone up!
Credits to Ms. Giggles for introducing this song to me.


i don't have to go to Disneyland..

By Farahin
..to be on a rollercoaster ride.

There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles,
Same old tired lonely place,
Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy,
Vanished when I saw your face.

I feel tired all the time. Some thing's changed. Please tell me I'm cut out for this?
Avril Lavigne said everybody hurts some days, right?

for the first time

By Farahin
.. in a very long time, i feel lost.
Can someone please direct me back to the right path?
I have no idea what am I doing.
Is this normal, is this right?
Maybe this was not meant for me, was it?

true enough

This might sound cheesy (and repetitive for some),
but it's what's keeping me happy.
(more like stuck in my head).

Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain,
'Cause I see sparks fly,
Whenever you smile.

I think it's a sweet song =D

Keep on driving. You'll get there.

Life is like driving on a one-way street.
Even though you're moving forward, at times you have to look back in your rear view mirror.
But as much as you want to make a U-turn, back to where you were, you can't.
All you can do is go where the road takes you.
.. and perhaps make the best of it & enjoy the scenery along the way.

Giving those are currently facing speed bumps my best wishes. =]

they met me halfway

By Farahin
You know they're good friends when they drove 16.9 km to see you. =)
Haven't had a talk like this for awhile now.
Life seems simpler here.

How I wish I could rewind this summer all over.
I'm only turning 21, but I have a feeling this might be the best summer of my life.
Is that too early too tell?

These 2 months, I learnt:
  • how to be a better friend, through an awesome friend of mine.
  • You're turning 21. It's time that you be the bigger person.
  • It doesn't take a lot to be excellent friends.
  • People can touch you in the simplest ways. Screw those people who are heartless enough to get it.
  • Friendships are meant to happen naturally. I should stop trying so hard to please people. (A wise girl told me this today).
  • Chick flicks have some truths in them. Excellent friends DO push/encourage each other. There is no jealousy.
  • It doesn't matter if you're on opposite ends of the world. Where there's a will, there's a way.
  • Good friends know your fears. Excellent friends help you conquer them.
  • It's okay to adapt to each person's unique personality. But once it changes you - get out.
  • It's funny how some people can make you smile every single day without fail. I wanna be that person too someday.
  • Trust is crucial. I give you my trust easily. But if you can't reciprocate my trust, maybe you're not the one for me.
